Hi. I am having trouble deciding what to plant. I would like to plant an ornamental weeping tree in our lawn. I would like it to provide a bit of privacy out from our lounge which looks out on to a wetland area with a walkway. But I don’t want to block the view completely with a huge tree. I would like something with a bit of a wow factor. One I have been consider is the weeping pear.
Any help appreciated. Thanks

Is dethatching just a hard rake or done by some other means?

We have lots of small toadstools which pop up each day in our reasonably new lawn. Is there some product to combat them? I have been pulling them out but not all come out with their roots intact. (Pity they aren’t mushrooms!!)

Is is necessary to ease up in the winter months on our sprinkling system watering every second day?

Many thanks for your response to the above queries

Hi there

We have purchased a farm with an older weatherboard cottage which is getting a good birthday as its a bit run down. We will be renting out the property and I want to plant some speciman trees as the property is currently very bare. Just wanting some ideas – something that looks good, is easy to care for – we are located in Tirau – so a few frosts in the winter and generally pretty warm dry summers. Want something that is fairly quick growing, can provide a bit of shade (but not too big either) and something that looks good year round.

Thanks
Cathy 🙂

Hi there,

I have an area below a vine wall that I need filled in as a sort of border area. I just want all the same plant that can grow into a border/ ground cover. We have lomandra grass around (our background is tropical themed) but I was wanting something a bit more thicker and flaxier leaves. This spots gets full afternoon sun from about midday.

Thank you.

Any suggestions would help

I have a phebalium hedge running the full length on one side of my property in Upper Hutt. The height is about 2.4 meters.
It has been planted alongside a wooden fence which is about 1.6 meters high.
I would like to top this hedge and bring it down to about the top of the fence.
The hedge is at least 40 years old.
When is the best time to trim it.
Thank you

I need advice on growing miniature bamboo plants:
First I need to know which miniature bamboo plants can be planted in MEDIUM sized pots – outside – as well as how to care for them.
Secondly I need to know if these plants are readily available at the Palmers outlet at Greville Road on the North Shore in Auckland.
Many thanx

What are some good plants for under planting under established hedges? The hedges are currently hiding a poor quality fence that can’t be replaced at the moment but the gaps under the hedge are fairly large so need something that will fill the space to hide the fence.

Hi,

I have a garden between our driveway and the house, it faces the west and doesn’t get morning sun. I would like to plant it with lavender, will it be suitable and if so which lavender would you recommend. The garden is about 14m long and about 800 wide, and I want to fill it with lavender.

Could you tell me how many plants I would need, and how much they are.

Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks Julie

Hello, i would like some advice on what plants to buy for a boundary hedge. The soil can get quite damp in winter, but not all year around. We are thinking of the lilly pilly or michelia figo or similar.
Do you have any recommendations for us?
We live in Paparoa, Northland.
Thanks

Kia Ora. My husband and I have a new house but our garden is just full of flax. We’d like to make room instead for our child to play and to grow other plants and vegetables but removing the flax is not going well- mainly because the roots are too tough for us to dig out. Any advice that would help us?
Thank you.

Hi, we are landscaping and there’s a small bank which is basically clay and rock. We’re going to remove the layer of turf (and dandelions!) and put some native grasses and Marlborough rock daisies on it. I’m wondering how we can get top soil to stay there?

Thanks!

Hi,
I have planted a Buxus hedge. I’ve done my spacing right between plants but I wanted to know what should the space be between the curb and the plant. Currently I have them planted very close to the concreate and I’m wondering if it’s a bit too close. I’ve tried to find out on google but can’t find any answers….
Thank you!

Hi there,

I’ve got a couple of trees at my house, and I love them, but I have no idea what they are.

I’d love to know, so I can learn how to look after and prune them.

I have a range of photos. How should I send them?
